book, Design to Renourish
Design to Renourish by Eric Benson (M.F.A. in Design, 2006) and Yvette Perullo was published this fall.  

Design to Renourish is a book for graphic designers that helps to integrate sustainability into their workflow through a design process called systems thinking. This process asks the graphic designer to approach a design problem by being more informed and aware of and influenced by the impacts that material and vendor choices have on one another, the planet and, consequently, on us.

The book not only walks the reader through how to design with nature as a model, but also offers solutions to the real life challenges of working with the client to create sustainable work. Through ten case studies that feature interviews with international design teams who embrace a sustainable systems methodology, the reader will gain valuable insights on how to design to renourish for positive change.
